Increased commercial and residential development on US 2 just north of Spokane has caused traffic volumes to increase by nearly 9 percent in the last 10 years. As a result, the number of congestion-related collisions is on the rise.

In late 2014, WSDOT unveiled several potential changes to the lane configuration on this busy highway corridor between the SR 206 intersection and Day-Mt. Spokane Road. Citizen and business owners then followed up with questions, concerns, and comments on the design, giving WSDOT planners some additional challenges to work through.

On Thursday, March 12, the Washington State Department of Transportation will host a public open house to present the new design refinements for this section of US 2.

WSDOT representatives will be on hand to explain the revised potential improvements for the SR 206 to Day-Mt. Spokane Road section. Information and suggestions from area residents, business leaders, and drivers will be used to shape the final plan for the highway.

The team will also have displays showing collision data and potential improvements for the northern half of the corridor, from Day Mt. Spokane Road to Elk-Chattaroy Road.
